Stinson Beach Feasibility Study

A study of Stinson Beach, CA evaluating the feasibility of developing a resilient beach and dune ecosystem to enhance habitats, improve equitable recreational access, and provide flood and erosion protection.

This study would assess the feasibility of a natural infrastructure project as an alternative to coastal armoring.

Dune restoration would include placement of sand, graded and planted to form back beach dunes. Beach nourishment is recognized as a natural way of mitigating backshore erosion as well
as maintaining a wider beach through sacrificial erosion of the dunes.

Project Partners: Marin County Community Development Agency, County of Marin, and the Ocean Protection Council
